At the entrance gate of a University in South Africa, the following message is posted for contemplation. “Destroying any nation does not require the use of atomic bombs or the use of long-range missiles; It only requires lowering the quality of education. The Collapse of education is the collapse of the nation.”
Don Bosco College, Kottiyam is part of the Don Bosco group of institutions known all over the world for quality education. We believe in preparing students to face life more than just equipping them to make a living. We believe in lovingly accompanying the students, helping them to discover their potentials and facilitating its maximisation. We believe in equipping our students to choose the right values in moments of value conflict. We aim at shaping them to be go-getters, global citizens capable of facing the challenges and pressures of the world rather than individuals staying safe in their comfort zones. We work extra hard to provide them platforms for teamwork, for creative initiatives, for God experience, for love for nature, for empathy for the downtrodden and for emotional equanimity. Marching on to its decennial year, Don Bosco College, Kottiyam is today the favourite destination for higher education for several hundreds of parents and students because like us they too see education as the process that is meant to prepare one to face life effectively.
